Reindeer Round Up

Eight Reindeer have escaped from Santas Workshop and found their way to Big White Ski Resort!

These Reindeer have been beautifully painted with works of art, capturing this year's theme of creatures of the planet. We need your help to round up all of the Reindeer and solve the secret message so that we can get them back to the Northpole! Grab your clues from the Concierge Desk located in the Village Centre Mall to begin the Scavenger Hunt and for more information about this activity.
